On Tuesday, Deadline reported that Johnny Depp would play a major role in the Fantastic Beasts franchise. Not only does Depp appear in the first of five films, which hits theaters Nov. 17, but the role sets him up to have an even bigger part in the sequel.
Harry Potter fans immediately took to social media to express their opinions on the matter.
Many cited Amber Heard's domestic abuse allegations against Depp as a reason he shouldn't be involved in the series.
Heard dropped the allegations in August when they settled the divorce and donated all of the financial proceeds from the divorce to charity.
